Google Chrome comes to Mac, Linux…sort of

Codeweavers, the company behind Crossover office, the software package that lets users run Windows applications on Mac and Linux as if they were native applications (ie without needing a Windows install or virtual machine) has released CrossOver Chromium bringing Google Chrome to Mac and Linux users for the first time.

Crossover Chromium uses the Chromium open source code base used for Google Chrome to deliver an all in one package. Unlike Crossover Office, Crossover Chromium is free. Installation is quick and easy, and the end result is Chrome where you didn’t have it before.

You can grab the download here if you want to check it out. Long term though, Google needs to get its act together and give us an official version of Chrome.
